It's fresh news on the front page of CNN. From the looks of the above, this may be a false flag that's been being perfected since what September of late last year?

There wasn't any bomb, the backpack just contained food. Guess it's good they are being over cautious.

Probably someone sneaked some food in. Maybe a hamburger.

ANAHEIM, Calif. (KABC) -- A report of an abandoned backpack prompted an evacuation at Disneyland Wednesday afternoon.

A spokesperson for Disneyland said there an unattended bag was discovered near the Tomorrowland theater at about 4 p.m.

The Orange County Sheriff's Department Bomb Squad was called to the scene to investigate.

The spokesperson said the bag is not suspicious looking, it was merely left unattended.

Disneyland security personnel cleared the area out of an abundance of caution.

The sheriff's department declared the bag sage. A family had left the bag, which was filled with food, by accident.

Disney is the parent company of ABC7.

This sort of thing is hardly surprising. I used to go to the parks at Disney World every winter and it would always worry me how little security there seemed to be (especially considering how many visitors circulate through the crowds!). I haven't been back in about a decade, so I don't know how things have changed in the meantime, but it would clearly be a high-value target for those who wish us harm. I have the same concerns about things like big outdoor concerts and sporting events attended by tens of thousands of people.

When was the last time a backpack bomb went off in the US? Why are there so many bomb scares lately because of random bags and backpacks? I really don't understand all the concern.

Disneyland is busting at the seams constantly with tourists carrying backpacks, bags, purses, carriages, etc. If a random backpack is sitting somewhere, this would be one of the LAST places I would think "oh noes! backpack bomb!".


I understand "you can never be too sure". But seriously, some people need to get a grip.

Concerts, etc, concern me too but I refuse to live in fear otherwise 'they' have won.

I was brought up in Britain during the height of the IRA and half my family are Irish - the family policy was that we always went about our business as usual but just be extra alert. I've taught my kids the same thing and my eldest now goes to clubs and concerts and I always make sure to remind her to check where the exits are when she arrives.

The concern is that none DO go off.

Your logic dictates that we need a backpack bomb to go off and people to die in order for us to be concerned. Why not be concerned to the point where nobody dies? Or is that what you want? As much as I despise California, even I wouldn't that to happen. Besides, what BETTER place to leave a bomb in a backpack than somewhere like Disneyland? It blends in like a tree in a forest.

So, what exactly should we be getting a grip on? Complacency? Blindly believing what we hear from the press?

This website is designed to deny ignorance. Not become one with it.

Get a grip.



Peace

Oh
sorry. I would probably be pretty dang paranoid with that many people and kids running around too though. I'm actually a little surprised some sicko hasn't already targeted Disneyland. It would make a huge statement and be very effective in terrifying a lot of people.


Disneyland is a holy place like Mecca or the wailing wall and terrorists skip it as a target for hopes of visiting it someday with their family

In events such as this, its always in the businesses best interest to keep it quiet to avoid any mass panic. Last time I was at Disneyland there were tens of thousands of people there and it wasnt even a busy day. Plus, that number doesnt factor in the other ten thousand employees they have.

Can you imagine all those paranoid moms with strollers stampeding for the entrance? Lawsuit anyone?

Not to mention the fact that Disneyland prides itself on being wholesome and safe for families and children, can you imagine how much money they would lose in one day if everyone either decided not to go for fear of being blown up, or were already there and demanded their money back?

I know it sucks to think about, but with corporate entities such as Disney, its all about the bottom line. If it turned out to be some kids back pack he forgot, and not a bomb, but they caused chaos and panic anyways, Im willing to bet more than a few heads would roll.

Nowadays, news travels so fast, they REALLY have to try hard to keep it under raps, the only thing worse than yelling "fire!" is yelling "BOMB!"

I live right next to the second or third biggest shopping mall in the country. I see all kinds of crazy stuff going on over there, plus my neighbor is a detective for the local police and he fills me in on what new crimes have been committed at the mall. Rapes, kidnappings, gang shootings/stabbings, you name it. But none of these things ever make the news because the mall PAYS the cops to keep it quiet to keep people feeling safe about shopping there....

What a crazy effed up world we live in eh?

Nowadays, they make you open up every bag you bring in so they can take a look inside, surprisingly no metal detectors...yet anyways.

It seems like eventually every where we go we'll be forced to endure measures similar to the airport security screens. Not that I dont want to feel safe, but its becoming a VERY slippery slope, and I dont see any end in sight.

Every time some new guy tries to unsuccessfully (thank god) blow something up, things become more and more "secure."

I fear eventually in the big cities we'll spend a good portion of our day walking through metal detectors, body scanners, having pat downs, asked to remove shoes, have your crotch sniffed by dogs etc etc etc
and the companies that provide these services will be laughing all the way to the bank!

ANAHEIM, Calif. – A part of Disneyland was briefly evacuated because of a suspicious bag spotted near a ride. Anaheim police Sgt. Tim Schmidt said Wednesday about 1,000 people were asked to leave

Tomorrowland for about 90 minutes because of the unclaimed bag. Schmidt says a bomb squad determined the bag — described as a rolling ice chest — was harmless and contained food. The bag was near the Captain EO ride in an area not accessible to the public. Schmidt says Disney employees are being let back in, and no other areas of the park were affected.


I used to have annual passes to DL. Always wondered when it would become a target. Thankfully not yet.

Common at Disneyland. There were a couple false flags back when I worked there. Not false flag as in NWO false flag, just false flag. The thing is that they check everyones bags before coming into the park. They really don't even check though. They just kinda glance into your bag and let you walk off. If you have no bag on you, they just let you through. One time they caught a guy trying to bring a gun into the park. I was shocked, not because he was attempting to sneak a gun into Disneyland (we all know there are some crazies out there), but because he got caught. It's like he was begging to get caught. The pre entrance security check at Disney is a joke. They need some metal detectors like Six Flags. Although Six Flags has them because of all the stupid gangs and thugs that like to visit the park but who is to say some deranged killer doesn't just strap on some homemade bomb around his waist? Or simply just stuff a gun down his pants. They would never know. They do have bomb sniffing dogs periodically roaming around though and I'm guessing maybe that's what tipped them off to that specific backpack because as someone already pointed out, there are tons of bags at Disney on any given day so how are you supposed to know which is carrying a bomb and which isn't.

I usually don't agree with searches and all that bc lately it's just come under the monicker of the false war on terror but at a place like Disneyland, I totally approve. Someone can cause some serious damage. On a not so busy day, there are about 50,000 guests between the two parks. During the peak seasons, you can expect anywhere between 80,000 to 100,000 guests at the resort, possibly even more. I seriously hope they step up the security.

The threat of an attack is very possible. At my old attraction, Space Mountain, we could put 1700 to 2000 guests through the ride in an hour. On busy days, the line can build up to 3 hours long with only the last 15 minutes of it being inside the actual building. So you have 2.75 x an average of 1850 = 5087.5 people in a zig zag of a line in a relatively small area. Let me break it down even further. There are about 13 zig zags and straight aways all of about equal length. Each zig zag being about 50-75 ft front to back and 3 side by side in the most dense of sections. So do the math. 5087/13 = 391.3 now multiply that by 3 in the area where the most damage could be done and that's 1173.92! That's some serious damage! Now, of course my numbers aren't 100% correct but I'd say pretty close if you were to go there on a busy summer day and take a look for yourself. In all honesty, I think they're extremely lucky nothing has happened yet. Disney does have the assets to respond quickly with their own police and firefighter force on duty in the park but the last thing we want is for them to have to respond to something like this.

There are legitimate concerns for sure, such as placing a backpack near an airport terminal, or under a propane tank. This however, does not strike me as one.

Of course I would not want anyone to get hurt, absolutely not. No one deserves to be the victim of terrorism. But if everyone went around reporting every unclaimed bag, backpack, lunchbox, etc, as a bomb; the world would be a ridiculous place.

The fact is people leave things unattended at amusement parks so they can enter the rides, theaters, or whatever attraction they are trying to enter without their cumbersome carry-ons. This is not new, and I'm pretty sure I've stashed my belongings in random places before to not be burdened by them. Usually, you risk theft, but lately it seems you risk the police, bomb squad and possibly the FBI.
